  • 5 star review  Kelly has been a magnificent teacher, teaching me some traditional Greek recipes i grew up with. Not only is she informative, she is very patient, very knowledgeable and most of all, her passion and love for food oozes when she teaches you online or in her home. Highly recommend anyone looking for traditional Greek cooking classes not only to learn, however to have some fun and most of all to meet others who also enjoy the flavours of Greece. I have done 10 classes and learnt so much, my favourite is Portokalopita, Cretan Bougatsa, Tiropita and the Greek Koulouri you find in the streets of Athens.

    5 star review  A great experience. Well organised. Great communication and differentiation during the session. Kelly was friendly and was able to involve all the participants even on the Zoom platform. Felt like we were all in the same location. I would highly recommend taking a class!

    5 star review  I loved the Ekmek class. Kelly was warm, fully immersed and professional. The class felt effortless. We learnt so much, were transported to Greece and had fun. It was a unique way to spend an evening with my 11 year old son. Quality time and what a treat to consume a delicious dessert afterwards. Thank you Hellenic Odyssey. ❤️

    5 star review  In November of 2020 towards the end of COVID Melbourne lockdown, our company (staff all working from home) needed a pick me up- we felt a little flat. We needed some extra motivation and also chance to promote further employee engagement during isolation. A Greek cooking class was something different and a fun activity to do! The feedback from everyone who attended was positive. No-one had ever cooking Greek from scratch before so it was a pleasant and rewarding learning experience! Also the food was delicious! I would recommend this class for a fun team bonding activity!

  • 5 star review  Definitely 5 stars (ignore my previous rating as I hit return before checking the detail)!!! This was my 2nd class with Kelly and it was just as much fun as the previous class. Kelly is very clear and patient making it easy to follow along. My biscuits are not very attractive but they taste wonderful. More practice needed I think!! Thanks Kelly

    5 star review  I participated in the zoom class (due to Melbourne Covid lockdown) to learn how to make the most popular Greek dessert Galaktoboureko. Such a fun time learning on this platform. Kelly was a wonderful teacher, very knowledgeable in Greek cuisine. She was informative, helpful and very patient. All participants were assisted as required and she worked at our pace giving easy step by step instructions. Above all our dessert was so delicious, a real hit in my home. Looking forward to more classes whether it be via zoom or in person.

    5 star review  I loved Kelly's online Christmas biscuit making class. Lots of online cooking classes have ceased since lockdown in Melbourne has relaxed so I was so lucky to come across this class. Kelly is really attentive, patient and friendly. And now I have lovely biscuits to give as Christmas gifts and a new culinary skill to add to my (small) collection. Thanks for a great class, Kelly!

    5 star review  I loved Kelly's online Christmas biscuit making, gemista and baklava classes! Lots of online cooking classes have ceased since lockdown in Melbourne has relaxed so I was so lucky to come across this class. Kelly is really attentive, patient and friendly. I've been able to make lots of delicious gifts and now have new culinary skills to add to my (small) collection. Thanks for running great classes, Kelly!

  • 5 star review  A great, intimate experience with a lovely teacher. The food was delicious too! I would highly recommend. We bought it as a gift for our Dad and he really loved it too. Kelly is full of knowledge and teaches in a way that doesn't make you feel silly (even if you have no skills at all, like me haha).

    thumb Steve Lamattina

    5 star review  Absolutely 10/10 experience. Kelly is lovely to speak with, a fantastic teacher and an amazing host. We made an amazing portokalopita with the guidance of Kelly. She was wonderful, answered all our questions and was fantastic with giving direction and ensuring everyone was involved. Thank you once again!

    5 star review  What a wonderful cooking class I participated in last night, learning how to make greek dips and pits bread in a fun and interactive online class. Kelly has built a great community of people around her that love cooking and greek food. I am looking forward to what's coming up next. This was my first class so was unsure as to whether I would keep up but this is all good with a very patient teacher. Thank you
